Small Group Walking Tours for Visitors & Newbies: Little India — Jasmine, Cattle, Spice & All Things Nice

Explore the heart and soul of Singapore’s Indian community — Little India. It is today a heritage district associated with vibrant colours, loud music, air filled with fragrant spices, and an eclectic mix of houses. But on this tour, you will be hearing not just about its present-day vibrancy, but also its early days of cattle slaughtering, horse racing, baby delivering and more!

Your tour starts from Rochor/Perak Road where you will be see a lesser known, religiously diverse, and contrastingly trendier section of Little India. You will find out about the different community groups worshipping at the religious spaces there, which includes a visit to the historical and architecturally marvellous Abdul Gaffoor Mosque. Check out the area's new hip-quotient, and find out how once old run-down buildings found a new identity, from a former-school-turned-hotel (Wanderlust Hotel) to numerous budget and backpacker’s lodgings as well as cafes and restaurants serving an international menu.

Carry onto Campbell Lane (one of the many roads with a European name), and Buffalo and Kerbau Roads (names associated with cattle) to discover traditional Indian trades, food, customs, attire, decorations, and businesses, and uncover the significance of each. A short break at Tekka Centre will allow sampling of local fare and observe where and how locals live and shop. Along the way, you will get to see the last remaining Chinese villa in Little India and the only North Indian temple in Singapore (see if you can spot it). A must visit is the Sri Veerakaliamman Temple, a national monument, to learn to appreciate the symbolism and meaning behind Hinduism and its rituals.

We will end at Mustafa Centre, the 24-hour mega-mart, where you can enjoy some retail therapy or just browse through the mind-boggling variety of goods — reportedly more 300,000 different items.

싱가포르 속 작은 인도 - 리틀인디아 워킹투어

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

다인종 국가인 싱가포르의 매력을 한껏 느낄 수 있는 리틀인디아, 우리에겐 아직 낯선 나라 인도를 흥미로운 신들의 이야기와 오감을 자극하는 매력적인 볼거리, 맛있는 음식과 함께 경험하다 보면 어느덧 그 매력에 푹 빠지게 됩니다.

 

[간략 코스 안내]

리틀인디아 MRT역(Exit E) 출발 -> 중국식 빌라 (House of Tan Teng Niah) -> 인디안 가랜드 샵 -> 스리 비라마칼리암만 사원(Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple) -> 휴식시간(인도 전통 음식 시식) -> 리틀인디아 아케이드 (헤나 체험, 전통의상 사리 입어보기 등) -> 테카마켓 -> 리틀인디아 MRT역 (종착지)

 

[미팅시간] 11월 28일 (화) 오전 9시 20분

 

[미팅장소] 리틀인디아(Little India) MRT역 E번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[리틀인디아는 어떤 곳인가요?]

화려한 빌딩 숲 사이에서 갑자기 나타난 작은 인도, 싱가포르 리틀인디아. 코를 자극하는 꽃 향기와 강렬한 향신료 냄새를 맡으며 좁고 분주한 골목길들을 만나면 무엇을 할지 몰라 당황하기 쉬운 곳이지만 알고 보면 골목 구석구석 매력적인 볼거리와 흥미로운 체험거리가 가득합니다.

리틀인디아가 어떻게 시작되었는지 궁금하지 않으신가요? 리틀인디아 거리 곳곳에 남아 있는 재미있는 거리 이름과 함께 인도 이민자들의 흥미진진한 싱가포르 정착기를 들려드립니다. 인도인들의 종교라 불리는 힌두교에는 수만의 신이 존재한다고 하죠. 리틀인디아의 가장 인기있는 명소 중 하나인 스리 비라마칼리암만 사원에서 인도인들의 삶과 떼어놓을 수 없는 신들의 이야기를 들어봅니다. 그들이 어떻게 신들을 섬기며 기도하는지 가까이에서 지켜볼 수 있는 기회입니다.

싱가포르 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들 뿐 아니라 다양한 인종들도 함께 살아가던 곳이었는데요. 그들의 흔적을 리틀인디아 곳곳에서 찾아볼 수 있습니다. 대표적으로 중국인들의 흔적인 무지개 빛의 알록달록한 중국식 빌라 앞에서 인증샷을 담아보세요.

리틀인디아는 과거 인도 이민자들이 모여 정착하면서 시작한 곳이지만, 지금까지도 싱가포르에 거주하는 인도인들이 매일매일 장을 보고 쇼핑을 하며 친구들을 만나는 곳입니다. 우리도 로컬처럼 리틀인디아를 즐겨보는 것은 어떨까요? 인도인들이 즐겨먹는 음식을 함께 시식하고 리틀인디아 아케이드를 방문하여 헤나와 인도 전통의상인 사리 등을 함께 체험해봅니다. 끝으로 싱가포르에서 가장 인기있는 재래시장인 테카마켓을 둘러보며 현지인들의 일상을 경험해봅니다.

Small Group Walking Tours for Visitors & Newbies: Cannonballs & Bathing Maidens — Singapore's Early History & Mysteries

 

Discover the magic of historic Fort Canning Hill. Over the last 700 years it has been transformed from the home of the ancient kings of Temasek to one of the seats of the colonial government (Raffles was very fond of it!), to a military base during WWII, to its current incarnation as a public park with beautiful art installations.

Starting at the foot of the hill, we will first explore some of our island's oldest landmarks such as the Armenian Church, Central Fire Station and Masonic Lodge. We will then climb up through the European burial grounds to hear the stories of some of Singapore’s notable 19th century personalities. Following which, we will wander through the lush oasis of Singapore 's first Botanic Gardens with its fascinating fig trees, to be carried away by stories of ancient springs and bathing princesses while visiting the shrine of the Malay Kings.

Our final stop on the Hill will be to learn about the dramatic events which took place in its underground bunker in the days leading up to the Japanese invasion in 1942.

We will finish our tour in the cooling air of the nearby National Museum of Singapore, where we will learn more about the history and architecture of Singapore's oldest museum.

이국적인 정취가 가득한 싱가포르 캄퐁글람 워킹투어

 

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

싱가포르에서 이국적인 정취가 가득한 캄퐁글람, 저희와 함께 걸으며 한때 이곳에 살았던 말레이 왕족들의 드라마틱한 흥망성쇠 이야기와 싱가포르 문화의 뿌리인 말레이 문화 속에 푹 빠져봅시다!!

 

 

[간략 코스 안내]

부기스(Bugis) MRT역 A번 출구 미팅-> 잘란 쿠보 이슬람 공동묘지-> 말라바 모스크 -> 알사고프 마드라사 (이슬람 종교 학교) -> 말레이 헤리티지 센터 -> 술탄 모스크 -> 부소라 스트리트 -> 아랍 스트리트 -> 말레이 전통 문화 체험 (말레이 전통 디저트 시식, 무알콜 향수 (아타) 시향, 말레이 전통 의상 입어보기 등) -> 하지 레인 (종착지)

[미팅 장소] 부기스(Bugis) MRT역 (녹색 Eastwest Line & 파란색 Downtown Line) A번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[캄퐁글람은 어떤 곳인가요?]

우리에게 아랍 스트리트로 더 잘 알려진 캄퐁글람은 싱가포르의 원주민이자 다민족 국가인 싱가포르에서 두 번째로 큰 민족인 말레이인들이 모여 살았던 곳입니다. 마치 차이나타운에는 중국 이민자들이, 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들이 모여 살았던 것처럼 말이죠. 그런데 캄퐁글람에는 한때 말레이 왕족들이 살던 궁전과 그들이 이용했던 이슬람 사원, 심지어 그들이 죽은 후에 묻힌 묘지가 지금까지 남아있습니다. 어쩐지 그들의 흥망성쇠 이야기가 궁금해지지 않나요?

캄퐁글람의 랜드마크이면서 싱가포르에서 가장 아름다운 이슬람 사원인 술탄 모스크에도 재미있는 이야기가 많이 담겨 있습니다. 캄퐁글람에 살았던 말레이인들과 아랍인들의 종교인 이슬람교를 직접 모스크를 방문하면서 배우는 것도 의미 있을 것입니다.

캄퐁글람 골목 구석 구석에는 전통 가게들이 남아 있습니다. 역사 깊은 카페에 잠깐 앉아 알록달록하고 달콤한 말레이 전통 디저트를 맛보며 잠시 쉬었다가, 무슬림들이 사용하는 무알콜 향수와 화려한 말레이 전통 의상도 만나 봅시다.

마지막으로는 캄퐁글람에서 가장 트렌디한 곳, 하지 레인 골목을 돌아보며, 그곳에 담긴 이야기도 듣고 멋진 인생샷도 남겨 보세요.

 

 

[캄퐁글람 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

  • 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 대규모 단체 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최소 3인부터 출발, 최대 15인으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.

Synopsis

For all his young life, Meng has dreamt of adventures beyond the confines of Emei Mountain. But his mother and aunt have always kept him close, warning him of the dangers and strangers lurking in the outside world.

Finally, Meng decides he has had enough of the creature comforts of home. Striking out on his own, he enrols in a martial arts school run by the mysterious Master Fahai.

There, he finds new friends and new love… even as old secrets from his family’s past slither to the surface. Fahai soon realises that Meng has been kept in the dark about who his mother and aunt really are: the magical White Snake and Green Snake of legend!

What will Meng do when he learns of his true heritage? Will Fahai succeed in driving a wedge between Meng and his mum? And, as chaos breaks out between enemies old and new, can true love overcome ancient rivalries and family quarrels?

싱가포르를 세운 영국인 래플즈 경의 발자취를 따라서 - 올드시티 & 싱가포르 리버

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

 

싱가포르는 19세기에 영국인 래플즈 경이 싱가포르 강변에 첫 발을 내딛고 무역항을 세우면서, 무역의 중심지로 발전해왔습니다. 싱가포르 내 영국 식민 정부의 행정 중심지였던 올드시티(시빅 디스트릭트)에 남아 있는 화려한 유럽식 건물들을 둘러보고, 무역 거점이자 현재는 낭만이 가득한 싱가포르 여행의 필수 코스, 싱가포르 강변을 함께 걸으며 재미있는 비하인드 스토리와 함께 싱가포르의 생생한 역사의 현장 속으로 빠져봅시다!

 

 

[간략 코스 안내]

시티홀 MRT역 출발-> 세인트 앤드류 대성당 -> 내셔널 갤러리 싱가포르 -> 커피브레이크 -> 더 아트 하우스 (구 국회의사당) -> 래플즈 동상 -> 싱가포르 강 (보트키) -> 아시아 문명 박물관 -> 빅토리아 극장과 콘서트 홀 -> 싱가포르 강변의 조각품 -> 카베나 브리지 -> 풀러튼 호텔 (종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 12월 15일 (금) 오전 9시 20분

 

[미팅 장소] 시티홀(City Hall) MRT역 (녹색 Eastwest Line & 빨간색 Northeast Line) B번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[올드시티(시빅 디스트릭트) 워킹투어 – 무엇을 하는지 궁금해요]

시빅 디스트릭트 (Civic District)는 도심지라는 뜻으로 싱가포르가 영국 식민지였을 때의 행정 중심지이자, 우리에게는 ‘올드시티’로 더 잘 알려진 곳입니다. 싱가포르 여행의 필수 코스인 싱가포르 강과 주변의 화려한 유럽식 건물이 남아 있는 곳, 바로 그곳입니다!

시빅 디스트릭트는 싱가포르에서 가장 큰 성당인 세인트 앤드류 대성당에서부터 시작됩니다. 영국 국교인 성공회에대한 이야기와 지금의 새하얀 고딕 건물이 완성되기까지 두 번이나 벼락을 맞았던 역사를 포함한 재미난 비하인드스토리를 놓치지 마세요.

싱가포르에 시청역은 있지만 시청은 없는 것 알고 계시나요? 왜냐하면 옛 시청 건물은 옛 대법원 건물과 함께 싱가포르 최대의 박물관, 내셔널 갤러리로 재탄생하였기 때문입니다. 싱가포르의 생생한 역사 이야기가 담긴 내셔널 갤러리 건물 구석 구석의 역사적 현장을 직접 탐방해 봅시다. 내셔널 갤러리에서 바라보는 백만불짜리 뷰는 덤입니다! (본 워킹투어는 내셔널 갤러리의 건축물을 중심으로 한 내부 관람 및 설명을 포함하고 있으나, 티켓이 필요한 예술 작품 관람은 포함되지 않음을 알려 드립니다.)

 

내셔널 갤러리를 나오면 여행 사진에서 수없이 보던 싱가포르 강이 눈 앞에 펼쳐집니다! 싱가포르 건국의 아버지 래플즈 경을 만나 싱가포르에 무역항을 세우게 된 사연과 파란만장한 인생 이야기를 듣는 것만으로도 싱가포르가 더욱 특별하게 느껴질 것입니다. 또한 싱가포르 강변은 곳곳에 있는 거리 아트(조각품)로도 유명합니다. 조각품에 담긴 스토리를 통해 수많은 무역상과 쿨리로 북적이던 무역항, 싱가포르 강으로 되돌아 가보는 건 어떨까요?

 

싱가포르 강변을 거닐다 보면 화려한 유럽식 건물들로 발길이 멈추게 될 텐데요. 시계탑이 돋보이는 빅토리아 극장과 콘서트 홀, 과거에 우체국 건물이었다가 고급 호텔로 변신한 풀러튼 호텔 등 - 다른 생김새 만큼 저마다의 쓰임새와 이야기를 갖고 있습니다. 외국 분위기가 물씬 느껴지는 유럽식 건물과 함께 찍는 인증샷, 잊지 마세요.

 

[올드시티 & 싱가포르 리버 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

  • 대규모의 단체 투어로 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최소 3인부터 출발, 최대 15인으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.

  • 본 워킹투어는 약 3시간 동안 진행되지만, 중간에 쉬어가는 곳이 여러 번 포함되어 있어 더위를 피하면서 어르신들과 어린이들도 거뜬히 해낼 수 있는 투어입니다.
  • 아이들에게 싱가포르라는 나라에 대한 흥미를 제공해주고, 다양한 스토리를 통해 쉽고 재미있게 우리 나라와는 전혀 다른 싱가포르의 역사적, 문화적 특성을 한 눈에 이해하게 될 것입니다.
  • 일방적으로 가이드의 설명을 듣는 투어가 아닌, 함께 소통하고 궁금한 점도 언제나 물을 수 있는 쌍방향 투어입니다.
  • 싱가포르에 최소 5년 이상 거주하여 싱가포르 현지 생활을 잘 아는 가이드의 생생한 경험을 들을 수 있는 투어입니다.

An Evening Vice (With Some Nice!) Walk Around Little India

Come along with us to explore another side of Little India, arguably the most authentic of Singapore’s heritage neighbourhoods, and one that oozes history.

Step off the beaten path and walk through a red light district, see where taxi girls and the Queen of Striptease strutted their stuff, learn about some grisly and gruesome stories set in the neighbourhood, and much more...

We will start our tour with a cocktail at the fun and funky Vagabond Club, a gem of a boutique hotel with an extraordinarily eclectic art collection that we'll also take a look at.

싱가포르 속 작은 인도 - 리틀인디아 워킹투어

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

다인종 국가인 싱가포르의 매력을 한껏 느낄 수 있는 리틀인디아, 우리에겐 아직 낯선 나라 인도를 흥미로운 신들의 이야기와 오감을 자극하는 매력적인 볼거리, 맛있는 음식과 함께 경험하다 보면 어느덧 그 매력에 푹 빠지게 됩니다.

 

[간략 코스 안내]

리틀인디아 MRT역(Exit E) 출발 -> 중국식 빌라 (House of Tan Teng Niah) -> 인디안 가랜드 샵 -> 스리 비라마칼리암만 사원(Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple) -> 휴식시간(인도 전통 음식 시식) -> 리틀인디아 아케이드 (헤나 체험, 전통의상 사리 입어보기 등) -> 테카마켓 -> 리틀인디아 MRT역 (종착지)

 

[미팅시간] 11월 28일 (화) 오전 9시 20분

 

[미팅장소] 리틀인디아(Little India) MRT역 E번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[리틀인디아는 어떤 곳인가요?]

화려한 빌딩 숲 사이에서 갑자기 나타난 작은 인도, 싱가포르 리틀인디아. 코를 자극하는 꽃 향기와 강렬한 향신료 냄새를 맡으며 좁고 분주한 골목길들을 만나면 무엇을 할지 몰라 당황하기 쉬운 곳이지만 알고 보면 골목 구석구석 매력적인 볼거리와 흥미로운 체험거리가 가득합니다.

리틀인디아가 어떻게 시작되었는지 궁금하지 않으신가요? 리틀인디아 거리 곳곳에 남아 있는 재미있는 거리 이름과 함께 인도 이민자들의 흥미진진한 싱가포르 정착기를 들려드립니다. 인도인들의 종교라 불리는 힌두교에는 수만의 신이 존재한다고 하죠. 리틀인디아의 가장 인기있는 명소 중 하나인 스리 비라마칼리암만 사원에서 인도인들의 삶과 떼어놓을 수 없는 신들의 이야기를 들어봅니다. 그들이 어떻게 신들을 섬기며 기도하는지 가까이에서 지켜볼 수 있는 기회입니다.

싱가포르 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들 뿐 아니라 다양한 인종들도 함께 살아가던 곳이었는데요. 그들의 흔적을 리틀인디아 곳곳에서 찾아볼 수 있습니다. 대표적으로 중국인들의 흔적인 무지개 빛의 알록달록한 중국식 빌라 앞에서 인증샷을 담아보세요.

리틀인디아는 과거 인도 이민자들이 모여 정착하면서 시작한 곳이지만, 지금까지도 싱가포르에 거주하는 인도인들이 매일매일 장을 보고 쇼핑을 하며 친구들을 만나는 곳입니다. 우리도 로컬처럼 리틀인디아를 즐겨보는 것은 어떨까요? 인도인들이 즐겨먹는 음식을 함께 시식하고 리틀인디아 아케이드를 방문하여 헤나와 인도 전통의상인 사리 등을 함께 체험해봅니다. 끝으로 싱가포르에서 가장 인기있는 재래시장인 테카마켓을 둘러보며 현지인들의 일상을 경험해봅니다.

 

 

[무엇이 좋나요?]

  • 대규모의 단체 투어로 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최대 15명으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.

  • 싱가포르 리틀인디아는 전세계 여행자들이 워킹투어로 경험하는 곳으로 저희 투어는 한국인의 문화와 정서에 맞게 투어코스와 내용을 맞춤설계 하여 영어로 듣는 것과는 다른 재미와 깊이를 경험하실 수 있습니다.

  • 본 워킹투어는 약 3시간 동안 진행되지만, 중간에 쉬어가는 곳이 여러 번 포함되어 있어 더위를 피하면서 어르신들과 어린이들도 거뜬히 해낼 수 있는 투어입니다.

Special highlights tour of Civic District & Telok Ayer

Especially for visitors to Singapore who may be looking for something interesting to do after the Christmas festivities, we're offering a "Tuesday" tour on a Wednesday!

We'll firstly explore the historic Civic District with its beautiful and impressive colonial buildings - including the Fullerton Building (the old General Post Office), the National Gallery (former Supreme Court & City Hall buildings), the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Victoria Concert Hall & Theatre and the Arts House (the old Parliament building).

You will learn about why, how and when Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in this sparely populated island in January 1819 to set up a trading post on behalf of the East India Company, his vision for its future and how he devised an early city plan.

We will then cross the Cavenagh Bridge, the only suspension bridge in Singapore, made with strong Scottish steel. There you will learn about the importance of the Singapore River in our country's trading history.

From there we'll walk from Boat Quay, once the hub of trade in Singapore, to Telok Ayer Street, where Singapore's coastline used to be before land reclamation. We'll visit the UNESCO awarded Wak Hai Cheng Bio and Thian Hock Keng temples – great examples of SEA temple architecture - as well as the Nagore Dargah Indian Muslim shrine to learn the importance of these places of worship to some the various communities which came here in the 19th century.

This tour will explore the historic Civic District with its beautiful and impressive colonial buildings - including the Fullerton Building (the old General Post Office), the National Gallery (former Supreme Court & City Hall buildings), the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Victoria Concert Hall & Theatre and the Arts House (the old Parliament building).

You will learn about why, how and when Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in this sparely populated island in January 1819 to set up a trading post on behalf of the East India Company, his vision for its future and how he devised an early city plan. 

You will also cross Cavenagh Bridge,the only suspension bridge in Singapore, made with strong Scottish steel. From there, you will learn about the importance of the Singapore River in our country's trading history.

These walking tours will have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!

Please note that the cost of these tours is a little higher as we are keeping the number small. The quality will be however very high; see comments below from our last one at the end of January which was a prototype for this new series:

"I would like to thank you for the tour yesterday, it’s been a wonderful morning! Your guide is amazing and so expert about history".

"I just wanted to let you know that my aunt had a brilliant time yesterday. She couldn't say enough about the tour and how great your guide was. Thanks so much! I will certainly recommend you".

"Your guide was WONDERFUL! We all enjoyed her. I'm looking forward to the next tour."

The Peranakans are undoubtedly one of SE Asia's most colourful and distinctive communities, which in Singapore consists mainly of a mix of the two rich cultures emanating from the marriage of early Chinese traders with Malay women.

The last few years have seen a huge resurgence of interest in, and identification with, Peranakan - also known as the Straits Chinese - history and heritage.

Their love of colour, patterns and sheer drama is evidenced in their material culture, whether it be their architecture, clothing or even every day cooking items (Peranakan cuisine is a delicious blend of Malay & Chinese and a very important part of their lives).

Not surprisingly, many have excelled in the areas of the arts, as well as having been successful in running businesses.

But who are they and how did this blend of Asian backgrounds coalesce into this vibrant community?

Join us for a walk through one of the most distinctive Peranakan enclaves in Singapore, Joo Chiat. Here we will meet some of their characters and explore their legacy, including the unique pre-war architecture, colourful two-storey shophouses and terrace houses with their ornate facades, intricate motifs and ceramic tiles.

Religion has always played a central role in the Peranakan culture; in earlier days, this was in the shape of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism - & often a blend of all 3! We will visit one of these 3-in-1 places of worship to see handcrafted, decorated paper objects, commissioned for the departed to enjoy in the spirit world as part of the rituals surrounding ancestor worship with its emphasis on filial piety.

We will also discover Christianity’s impact on the Peranakans in the form of the 1930s Bethesda Church, recently designated as a conservation building, and one of only two Christian churches offering Peranakan church services here.

And let's not forget that delicious food! We'll "graze" on popiahs, visit the famous Red House bakery on our walk and end at the equally famous Glory restaurant, where you can also stay on for an optional lunch.

Little India: Cattle, Jasmine, Spice & All Things Nice

Explore the heart and soul of Singapore’s Indian community — Little India. It is today a heritage district associated with vibrant colours, loud music, the fragrance of flowers and spices, and an eclectic mix of houses. But on this tour, you will be hearing not just about its present-day vibrancy, but also its early days of cattle slaughtering, horse racing, baby delivering and more!

You will find out about the different community groups worshipping at the religious spaces there, which includes a visit to the historical and architecturally marvellous Abdul Gaffoor Mosque. Check out the area's new hip-quotient and find out how old run-down buildings found a new identity, from a former-school-turned-hotel (Wanderlust Hotel) to numerous budget backpacker’s lodgings as well as cafes and restaurants serving an international menu.

Moovvve on to Campbell Lane (one of the many roads with a European name), and Buffalo and Kerbau roads (names associated with cattle), to discover traditional Indian trades, food, customs, attire, decorations and businesses, and uncover the significance of each. A short break at Tekka Centre will allow sampling of local fare and observe where and how locals live and shop. Along the way, you will get to see the last remaining Chinese villa in Little India and the only North Indian temple in Singapore (see if you can spot it). A must visit is the Sri Veerakaliamman Temple, a national monument, where you learn to appreciate the symbolism and meaning behind Hinduism and its rituals.

We will end at Mustafa Centre, the 24-hour mega-mart, where you can enjoy some retail therapy or just browse through the mind-boggling variety of goods, a reported 300,000 items.

The People behind the Botanic Gardens & a visit to the new Learning Forest

OUR TUESDAY DISCOVERY TOURS ARE AIMED AT VISITORS AND NEW SINGAPORE RESIDENTS, BUT WE FIND EVEN "OLD TIMERS" LEARN A LOT. WE KEEP TO A MAX OF 10, & PACE THE WALK TO TAKE OUR SULTRY CLIMATE INTO ACCOUNT; LOTS OF WATER & AIRCON STOPS ARE INCLUDED! DUE TO THE SMALL GROUP SIZE THE PRICE IS JUST A LITTLE HIGHER.

We all know how beautiful & important to our heritage and well being the Singapore Botanic Gardens are, but who are the men and women - the botanists, artists, conservationists and more - who left their imprint on our one and only UNESCO site (to date)?

Learn about Lawrence Niven, hired in 1859 as its first superintendent and landscape designer to turn what had been overgrown plantations and a tangle of virgin rainforest into a public park, reflecting the style of the English Landscape Garden Movement. 

With its dynamic duo of flora - the rubber & the orchid – our Gardens helped to revolutionise our local industries. Meet "mad" Henry Ridley, director of the Gardens from 1888-1912, and the far sighted visionary and proponent of the humble rubber tree.

See the amazing orchid hybrids including those which have been cultivated for VIP visitors, and learn about Professor Eric Holttum, the director from 1926-1949, who initiated the orchid hybridisation and seed germination programme in the Gardens, as well the only father and son pair to hold the post of Director, Isaac and Humphrey Burkill, after whom Burkill Hall is named.

Learn about E J H Corner, the Assistant Director from 1929-1945, an expert on fungi and tropical trees and palms who went on to become Professor of Tropical Botany at the University of Cambridge. His colonial house is now a restaurant and bears his name.

And let's not forget the women ! Firstly Ursula Holttum, wife of aforementioned Eric, who sculpted the famous sundial (see pic below) installed in the Gardens in 1929. And the wonderful Lady Yuen Peng McNeice who funded so many conservation, research and education projects, and in 1994 donated a unique collection of 20,000 bromeliads, as well as several sculptures; she also sponsored the publication of two books about the Gardens.

We'll also see some of the Gardens' 58 majestic Heritage Trees and learn the stories of the fauna who have made their home here.

And we'll end our walk with a visit to the recently opened Learning Forest, the buffer zone for our Unesco heritage site, where we'll focus on the fruit trees in the Wild Fruit Trees Arboretum.

Background info on the BTNR: A mere 12 km from the bustling city centre, this 163-ha reserve is home to a rich and diverse ecological system includinf around 40% of our nation’s (native) flora and fauna. It also encompasses Singapore’s highest hill, Bukit Timah, which stands at 163 m and retains one of the few areas of primary rainforest in the country.

Established in 1883, Bukit Timah Forest Reserve was one of the first forest reserves to be created in Singapore, as recommended by Nathaniel Cantley, the then Superintendent of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

In 1882, Cantley was commissioned by the government of the Straits Settlements to prepare a report on the forests of the settlements, in which he recommended that several forest reserves to be created on the island. All the reserves, except for Bukit Timah Forest Reserve, were however worked for timber.

By 1937, most of these reserves had been depleted due to economic development. Thankfully, Bukit Timah Forest Reserve was retained for the protection of its flora and fauna under the management of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Nature Walking Tour: Pulau Ubin's Wild West

image_proxy-16.jpeg

Come & join us for one of our most popular Walking Tours, on the delightful Pulau Ubin, arguably Singapore's last real kampong.

And in the "Wild West" of Ubin, we will see the extraordinary German Girl's Shrine plus arguably the most eclectic temple in Singapore with its Thai & Tibetan sections, Hindu deities & more! Ubin itself is a treat - with its swaying coconut palms, shady trails in overgrown rubber plantations, rustic roads, secluded beaches and flourishing mangroves.

It feels like you've stepped back into the Singapore of the 1960's; in fact the slow lane starts as soon as you join the queue for the bumboat at Changi!

Our very experienced and knowledgeable guide (an NParks guide as well as STB guide) will point out areas of particular interest, especially wildlife. We will also look at the historical significance of the area. After a 3.5 hour walk, including refreshments (included in the price) on the island we will head back by ferry to the "mainland".

Please note you have a choice of meeting us at Dempsey at 8am to drive to Changi, or to meet us there at 8:30am; tickets are priced for these 2 options accordingly. The relevant directions will be sent to you a few days before the walk.

What made the residents of the Gudung Kuning (the Yellow Mansion) rich and famous?

Nature & History Walk to St John's & Lazarus Islands

A few kilometres south of Singapore lies a secret beach with clear waters and white sands on St John's Island, one of the country's many beautiful offshore islands.

St John's Island was once a quarantine centre for immigrants coming into Singapore who had cholera, beri-beri and leprosy. It was later used to house political prisoners and drug rehabilitators - you can still see the high barbed wire fences - and was also a refuge for Vietnamese boat people

Today, both St John's and its neighbour Lazarus Island are known as places for a day trip away from the city, so come & join us as we explore the nature and history of these beautiful pieces or paradise!

Singapore's very own Olympic gold medalist Joseph Schooling is Eurasian. So was Dr Benjamin Sheares, our second president. A wonderful example of the incredible "rojak" mix of some Eurasians would be prominent Singapore lawyer and politician Eddie Barker, whose background included Portuguese, Irish, Japanese, Scottish, Malay and German!

Singapore's Eurasian community may be small, but it claims some very notable figures who have made a big impact and who truly represent Singapore's inherent and historic ethnic and cultural diversity.

Journey to the West: Jurong & Beyond

Inspired by the legendary 16th century tale of a Buddhist monk's pilgrimage to the “Western Region”, this tour will be an exploration of Singapore’s Western part. Known mainly for its industrial zone and shipyards, Jurong will surprise you with its hills, gardens, national monuments, with its important past but also its a vibrant future.

To honour the roots of the Journey to the West tale, we will start our journey with a visit to Singapore’s most bizarre and unforgettable attraction – Haw Par Villa, formerly known as the Tiger Balm Gardens. A true gem from a lost era, this one-of-its-kind theme park with its over 1000 quirky statues and gruesome depictions of underworld will introduce you to Chinese Mythology & Folklore.

Next we will head to Jurong Hill and The Eye in the Sky, the Jurong Hill Lookout Tower which hosted many foreign dignitaries including royalty, and which offers a panoramic view of the entire industrial zone. On the way there we will visit another heritage gem, Jurong Town Hall, a boldly futuristic building and a symbol of Singapore’s industrial push.

Our pilgrimage will continue at Nanyang University; designed in the Chinese National style, blending both traditional Chinese and modern elements, the former university building is a witness to the history of the Chinese diaspora and education.

Last but not least will be our visit to the Dragon Kiln, one of the last surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore. The firing of this kiln takes place only twice a year and we will be there to witness this now fairly rare occurrence, and to understand and appreciate the disappearing art of wood-firing!

THIS WILL BE A FUN OUTING FOR CHILDREN TOO!

Finding Maria is a study of the brutality of war and Singapore’s post-war years brought to vivid life by the immaculate research Dawn is known for. This fictional story (previously published under the title A Crowd of Twisted Things) is based on the turbulent times of 1950s, when Singapore went through a series of racial and religious riots. Tensions had been simmering for months over the custody battle for wartime waif Maria Hertogh between her Malay-Muslim foster mother and her Dutch-Catholic biological parents & this case brought things to a violent and divisive end.

Our tour will start the Harmony in Diversity Gallery describing the journey of Singapore’s unique identity. and where we will find out more about the Maria Hertogh case. We'll then hop on the MRT to explore the place where Maria was kept during the court hearings, before finishing our tour at the National Gallery (the former Supreme Court) where the final dramatic events took place. Again, the author will meet us there for a discussion and book signing.

After a short break, you will have an opportunity to join a special reading by one of our leading Singaporean authors, Josephine Chia, of one of her stories inspired by Maria herself.

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

차이나타운은 가장 오래된 건물들과 사원들이 남아있는 역사 깊은 명소일 뿐 아니라 가장 트렌디한 바와 카페들이 자리잡고 있는 곳이기도 합니다. 알록달록한 파스텔톤의 샵하우스가 배경이 되어 차이나타운에서 찍는 모든 사진은 인생샷이 된답니다. 싱가포르 중국이민자들의 전통문화와 더불어 싱가포르 젊은이들이 사랑하는 핫플레이스를 여유와 낭만이 가득한 워킹투어로 경험해보세요.

 

[간략코스안내]

텔록아이어(Telok Ayer) MRT역 A번 출구 미팅 -> 티안혹켕템플(천복궁) -> 안시앙 힐 & 클럽스트리트 -> URA 시티갤러리 -> 커피브레이크 -> 사고 스트리트(불아사) -> 스미스 스트리트 -> 파고다 스트리트(차이나타운 MRT역, 종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 10월 30일 (월) 오전 9시 20분

[차이나타운 워킹투어 - 무엇을 하는지 궁금해요]

텔록아이어 스트리트는 싱가포르에서 가장 오래된 중국사원인 티안혹켕템플(천복궁)을 비롯하여 초기 이민자들이 세운 모스크, 사원 등이 나란히 자리를 잡고 있는 곳입니다. 다양한 신들이 이웃이 되어 옹기종기 모여있는 싱가포르에서만 볼 수 있는 특이한 풍경을 놓치지 마세요.

 

헤리티지 투어라서 옛날 이야기만 할거라 짐작하셨나요? 한국의 도시개발공사와 비슷한 기관인 URA 시티갤러리에서 싱가포르의 도시개발정책과 국방, 경제, 정치 분야와 같은 일반 정보들을 전시물들과 함께 쉽게 알려드립니다.

 

싱가포르에 오시면 누구나 맛보시는 카야 토스트와 싱가포르 로컬커피를 함께 즐기며 달콤한 휴식시간을 가져봅니다. 싱가포르 로컬커피를 처음 선보인 사람은 누구일까요? 현지인처럼 커피를 주문 하고 싶으신가요? 음식에 담겨 있는 역사와 재미난 스토리를 알게 되시면 더욱 특별한 경험이 됩니다.

 

차이나타운의 개성 있는 거리 사고 스트리트, 스미스 스트리트를 함께 걸으며 중국계 싱가포르인들의 장례 문화, 음식 문화를 알아보고 차이나타운 곳곳에서 목격할 수 있는 쿨리와 삼수이 여인들의 절절한 사연들을 들어봅니다.

 

[차이나타운 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

  • 대규모의 단체 투어로 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최소 3인부터 출발, 최대 15인으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.
  • 싱가포르 차이나타운은 전세계 여행자들이 워킹투어로 경험하는 곳으로 저희 투어는 한국인의 문화와 정서에 맞게 투어코스와 내용을 맞춤설계 하여 영어로 듣는 것과는 다른 재미와 깊이를 경험하실 수 있습니다.

  • 본 워킹투어는 약3시간 동안 진행되지만, 중간에 쉬어가는 곳이 여러 번 포함되어 있어 더위를 피하면서 어르신들과 어린이들도 거뜬히 해낼 수 있는 투어입니다.

  • 로컬들만 아는 뒷골목 명소들로 안내해드리며 저희 비비시스터즈가 오랜 기간 발굴하고 추천하는 맛집 정보는 덤입니다.

  • 아이들에게 중국 문화와 역사에 대한 흥미를 제공해주고, 아이들이 쉽게 다민족 국가인 싱가포르의 문화적 특성을 이해하게 될 것입니다.

  • 일방적으로 가이드의 설명을 듣는 투어가 아닌, 함께 소통하고 궁금한 점도 언제나 물을 수 있는 쌍방향 투어입니다.

  • 싱가포르에 최소 5년 이상 거주하여 싱가포르 현지 생활을 잘 아는 가이드의 생생한 경험을 들을 수 있는 투어입니다.

Meet our Communities: The Peranakans of Joo Chiat
Oct
27
9:00 AM09:00

Meet our Communities: The Peranakans of Joo Chiat

The Peranakans are undoubtedly one of SE Asia's most colourful and distinctive communities, which in Singapore consists mainly of a mix of the two rich cultures emanating from the marriage of early Chinese traders with Malay women.

The last few years have seen a huge resurgence of interest in, and identification with, Peranakan - also known as the Straits Chinese - history and heritage.

Their love of colour, patterns and sheer drama is evidenced in their material culture, whether it be their architecture, clothing or even every day cooking items (Peranakan cuisine is a delicious blend of Malay & Chinese and a very important part of their lives).

Not surprisingly, many have excelled in the areas of the arts, as well as having been successful in running businesses.

But who are they and how did this blend of Asian backgrounds coalesce into this vibrant community?

Join us for a walk through one of the most distinctive Peranakan enclaves in Singapore, Joo Chiat. Here we will meet some of their characters and explore their legacy, including the unique pre-war architecture, colourful two-storey shophouses and terrace houses with their ornate facades, intricate motifs and ceramic tiles.

Religion has always played a central role in the Peranakan culture; in earlier days, this was in the shape of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism - & often a blend of all 3! We will visit one of these 3-in-1 places of worship to see handcrafted, decorated paper objects, commissioned for the departed to enjoy in the spirit world as part of the rituals surrounding ancestor worship with its emphasis on filial piety.

We will also discover Christianity’s impact on the Peranakans in the form of the 1930s Bethesda Church, recently designated as a conservation building, and one of only two Christian churches offering Peranakan church services here.

And let's not forget that delicious food! We'll "graze" on popiahs, visit the famous Red House bakery on our walk and end at the equally famous Glory restaurant, where you can also stay on for an optional lunch.

Film Event: Charity Screening of "The Helper"

Film Event: Charity Screening of "The Helper"

Join us! Come along to the screening at The Projector with your helper, or shout her some tickets to enjoy it with her friends.

Either way, make sure you get there early (from 5pm) to enjoy a free glass of Mumm Champagne (thank you Pernod Ricard!) and perhaps hear a few local stories before the movie starts rolling at 6pm.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics), to help them continue the great work they do to support helpers in Singapore. Additional donations to HOME are also welcome on the night!

The documentary: Foreign domestic workers take on the mammoth task of managing households and looking after the families of Singapore day after day. They keep our kids safe, nurtured, and smiling, and most importantly, they make them feel loved when mum and dad can’t be there.

While doing all this, they also manage to include ‘keeping the place tidier than you lot ever will’ in their job description, and many prepare better meals than a Masterchef wannabe. In most cases, they do all this with a smile while longing for the families they’ve left behind at home.

In short, we’ll never fully comprehend the sacrifices they’ve made to be here, but we are eternally grateful.

[국립박물관 & 포트캐닝파크 워킹투어 - 무엇을 하는지 궁금해요]

 

포트캐닝파크는 현지인들이 아침운동, 문화공연을 즐기러 주로 찾는 곳인데요. 푸르게 우거진 나무들, 그 나무를 오가는 다람쥐들, 새들과 더불어 도심 속 산책을 즐깁니다. 또한 싱가포르 보타닉 가든의 원조인 스파이스 가든에서 동남아시아 대표 향신료를 경험해봅니다.

공원 곳곳에는 싱가포르 역사의 흔적들이 보물처럼 숨어있는데요. 고대 싱가포르의 왕이 잠들어있다는 무덤과 싱가포르 건국의 아버지인 레플즈 경의 집이 있었던 레플즈 테라스, 19세기에 지어진 요새의 포트케이트(Fort Gate) 등 싱가포르 700년 역사를 아우르는 유적들을 직접 보실 수 있습니다.

[국립박물관 & 포트캐닝파크 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

  • 대규모의 단체 투어로 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최소 3인부터 출발, 최대 15인으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.

See Hossan Leong, Karen Tan and other SG stars at our theatre event - Forever Young by Sing'theatre

Join us for a light hearted look at a serious subject - one that is sadly likely to affect most of us either directly or indirectly.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Sing’theatre presents FOREVER YOUNG! a hilarious jukebox musical adapted by Benjamin Lee from the original European cult hit written by the Swiss writer Erik Gedeon.

Join our amazing cast Hossan Leong, Karen Tan, Julian Wong, Tan Kheng Hua, Candice De Rozario, Suhaimi Yusof, Ebi Shankara for an unforgettable experience of what it means to be Forever Young....and rock in your chairs to Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, and for the hard of hearing, there’s even Led Zeppelin!

Synposis: It is 2067 and a nursing home houses a group of actors who were previously pillars of the Singapore arts scene. Looked after by their no-nonsense nurse, Sister Sara, these nonagenarians still think they’re limber enough to belt out musical theatre canons, rock classics, and the occasional scene from better known local television shows... so once Sister Sara leaves the room, the wigs come off, dentures fly, and walking frames become stage props and you’ll see why they say age is only a (musical) number.

헤리티지 투어라서 옛날 이야기만 할거라 짐작하셨나요? 한국의 도시개발공사와 비슷한 기관인 URA 시티갤러리에서 싱가포르의 도시개발정책과 국방, 경제, 정치 분야와 같은 일반 정보들을 전시물들과 함께 쉽게 알려드립니다.

 

싱가포르에 오시면 누구나 맛보시는 카야 토스트와 싱가포르 로컬커피를 함께 즐기며 달콤한 휴식시간을 가져봅니다. 싱가포르 로컬커피를 처음 선보인 사람은 누구일까요? 현지인처럼 커피를 주문 하고 싶으신가요? 음식에 담겨 있는 역사와 재미난 스토리를 알게 되시면 더욱 특별한 경험이 됩니다.

  • 본 워킹투어는 약3시간 동안 진행되지만, 중간에 쉬어가는 곳이 여러 번 포함되어 있어 더위를 피하면서 어르신들과 어린이들도 거뜬히 해낼 수 있는 투어입니다.

Tuesday Discovery Walk - Colours of Chinatown

 

This walk will weave in visits to the diverse houses of worship in South Bridge Rd, one of Singapore’s “harmony” streets, also home to goldsmiths, herbalists & more. Plus wend its way through the heart of Chinatown to see old shophouses, a former Cantonese opera theatre, a traditional wet market and the famous Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

You'll hear the sad tales of Sago Lane, the tough life of Singapore's hard working coolies, and find out about early Singapore's"underbelly" - secret societies, houses of ill repute and opium dens.

After our last stop at the City Gallery - where you will learn about our city planning, past present & future - your guide will drop you off at the ever popular Maxwell Food Centre for discoveries of the edible variety !

Small Group Walking Tours have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!

Please note that the cost of these tours is a little higher as we are keeping the number small. The quality will be however very high.
